Mobile learning (M-learning) becomes revolutionary way to educate the world with the mass advancement in information and communications technology (ICT). It is difficult to deal with m-learning due to increasing number of users, services, education contents and resources and modes to deploy. Cloud computing, with its dynamic scalability and virtualized resources usage, is widely deployed for several applications in many organizations. It has a significant impact in the educational and learning environment. This paper presents a new model for mobile learning system in cloud computing environment that is enriched with high performance computing (HPC) and graphical processing unit (GPU) cluster infrastructure. This model aggregates the power with new technologies to implement M-leaning process more effective with high performance and quick response.
